Accelerating Enterprise Network Transformation
Many, if not most, networks have grown organically over a period of years as the needs of the business evolve. Typically this results in disparate network equipment, and associated management systems, being deployed for engineering and operational departments to run the network. Driven by inexorable growth in the generation and transmission of data, network managers are constantly monitoring capacity and performance to manage demand and sweat the most out of their assets. Inevitably, incremental organic changes occur to deal with fluctuations in demand adding to organic growth in the network.
“By adopting Federos we are able to provide our customers with flexibility for network routing and automated provisioning which enables us to ensure best value and full network operational transparency.”
Sam Saunders, Head of Outsourced Operations at GEO Networks
Federos™ provides a vendor agnostic, process driven approach to network transformation, increasing options for risk mitigation and regression planning, and ensuring both the success of the equipment transformation and critically the future integrity, accuracy and currency of data in management systems.
Mapping and Managing Your Data
A core component of the Federos™ system is an Entity Relationship Manager that enables data from multiple systems to be tied together based on business rules. This powerful facility provides the business with the ability to identify and resolve data integrity issues in advance of transformation programs, and serves as a master data reference for integrated management systems.
Leading with Workflow Driven Automation
The early capture of all associated data relating to the implementation of network change, and the necessary update of all Operational Support Systems (OSS), enables workflows in Federos™ to execute changes in an integrated, automated and controlled manner reducing the potential for manual errors.
Federating Management Platforms
Federos™ enables automated network management activities to be implemented regardless of equipment vendor, and reduce the risk of vendor lock-in often identified with traditional network management environments.
Federos removes obstacles, delivers a flexible platform, integrates both legacy and current technology and delivers competitive advantage through:
- Reducing risk and increasing agility with vendor agnostic integration
- Powerful control of data across multiple connected management systems
- Workflow driven automation to optimise operations process
- Flexible interoperability between equipment vendors through federation
- Holistic, integrated visibility and control for network management teams
